Day Two Wild Selections

#39 - Brett Bulmer - RW - Kelowna Rockets - Prince George, British Columbia

With the 39th pick in the NHL Entry Draft, the Minnesota Wild selected RW Brett Bulmer of the Kelowna Rockets. Bulmer, who is listed at 6-foot-2, 175 pounds, posted 13 goals and 27 assists in 65 games with the Rockets last year. He also scored three goals and two assists in 12 WHL playoff games.

"Brett is a hard-working, physical player that is a strong skater and has good puck skills," said Wild amateur scout Paul Charles.

Bulmer is termed a "late bloomer" both in stature, and in his hockey skills. He was 5-foot-7 during his Bantam draft year, and wasn't taken in the WHL Draft until the 11th round. Since then, he has grown five inches and developed his game.

"Brett is a bigger forward that has very good skills for a tall man," said his junior coach, Ryan Huska. "The more experience he gets, the better he has been getting."

#56 - Johan Larsson - RW - Brynas Jr. - Lau, Sweden

With the 56th pick, the Wild selected RW Johan Larsson of Brynas Jr. in Sweden. Larsson was the 34th ranked European skater.

#59 - Jason Zucker - LW - USNP U-18 - Las Vegas, NV

The Wild traded its 69th and 99th picks to move up and select LW Jason Zucker of the USDP U-18 team. Zucker was the 51st ranked player among North Americans according to Central Scouting. Zucker was a member of Team USA's gold medal World Junior team. He also won gold at the 2009 and 2010 World U-18 Championships.

#159 - Johan Gustafsson - G - Farjestad Jr. - Swedish Jr.

The Wild used its sixth round pick to select goaltender Johan Gustafsson of Farjestad in the Swedish Jr. Leagu. Gustafsson ranked number five among all European goaltenders available in the Draft. In 26 games with Farjestad, Gustafsson posted a 2.86 goals against average, and a .894 save percentage.

Gustafsson is familiar with Minnesota, having visited twice. He attended Robb Stauber's goalie camp, Goalcrease.

#189 - Dylen Mckinlay - RW - Chilliwack - WHL

The Wild made its final selection of the Draft, taking RW Dylen Mckinlay, the 126th ranked skater among North Americans. Mckinlay followed up a 10 point rookie season in Chilliwack with a 42-point campaign last year, including 20 goals in 72 games.
